Enough To Wipe Out An Entire City

Giant rolls of toilet tissue await cutting and packaging at the Clearwater Paper Mill in Lewiston

The Clearwater Paper mill at Lewiston is a major asset for Idaho during the COVID-19 pandemic. The mill isn’t in the gold mining business, but its Lewiston mill manufactures a product as valuable as gold–toilet paper. The plant is listed as an “essential service” by Gov. Brad Little.

When shown this photo, one reader commented, “That’s big enough to wipe out an entire city.”
